Cheating and reading the Intro to the presentation on the flier.

Childhood developmental disorders can be traced to negative experiences in childhood

Can we summarise the presentation as stresses felt in childhood development result in downstream consequences which adversely affect proper development.

Or place a black bag over a seedling ever couple of weeks - and the plant which grows will not develop as it otherwise could.

The sole point I'm seekign to make (also made by Gabor Mate in his story of the crying babies during Nazi invasion) ... ... is that stress in the parent (the only significant one of which is the need to earn money) is the black bag which is being placed over the infant.

Asphyxiating the baby into maldevelopment.

Childhood developmental disorders can be traced to negative experiences in childhood

So - what're the negative experiences in childhood which the child (with stressed parents) experiences.

-1- Kiddy being dumped on other people (who generally care little for your children) in order to go to work - it's almost impossible for someone in a career to stop for a period and return back.
... ... where this problem can be summarised as ---> MONEY <---
-2- Kiddy childcare etc costs are so high! - that having a child turns from a supposedly positive experience, in the world in which we've created - into a profoundly negative one - as the stress of paying for childcare, education, regular changes in clothing, birthday parties, the toys which they absolutely need to keep up with their friends, music lessons, sports lessons ... ... MOUNT up.
... ... where this problem can be summarised as ---> MONEY <---
-3- The stress of ensuring that children do well at school ... ... because if they don't ... ... then they won't be able to survive in this world - where only money matters.
... ... where this problem can be summarised as ---> MONEY <---

... ... and so it continues.

Negative childhood experiences which lead to poor childhood development are ALL a consequence of living within a global monetary system; where - the only people who do well in this system are a danger to species viability.
